Kadoomentbetter

The Crop Over Festival in Barbados which ends with the spectacular Carnival/Kadooment Parade, is the season used to celebrate the ending of the local Sugar Cane harvest, and is distinctly unique from the Carnival festivities in other Caribbean countries.

Many “old time” elements like the local cultural characters mix with modern additions to give this festival a character unlike any other in the Caribbean. Celebrations are not only vibrantly colorful and full of music, but also reveal all aspects of Barbadian culture, a mixture of African survival heritage and Western modern culture through exhibitions of art, craft, music, and dance. Barbados’ Crop Over Festival Activities and Events are many and varied with plenty of things to do for everyone’s taste.

SPICE ISLE MAS – GRENADA 2013 CARNIVAL

Spice Mas Carnival is an important event in the Grenadian calendar. It is a festival celebration that is designed to celebrate the country’s independence from colonial rulers. The event is a very colorful one that brings to fore the wealth and depth of the traditions, history and culture of Grenada. The country has a rich blend of culture with influences from their British, African, and Caribbean heritage.

ST. LUCIA CARNIVAL – JULY 2013

It is a common assumption that carnival traditions were brought to colonies in the New World by Europeans. It is partly true of course, but the inspiration flowed even stronger from another part of the world. When looking at today’s street carnivals it is quite clear that ancient African traditions have had a very strong influence. The history of the carnival can be viewed from different angles, but one thing is sure: it is a result of a cross-cultural exchange that started centuries ago.

Getting bigger and better every year Saint Lucia carnival is always spicing things up and this year was no different!
